Steps in the inner courtyard of Castel Sant’Angelo (Castle of the Holy Angel) in Rome. Popes began to convert the Mausoleum of Hadrian into a castle from the beginning of the 14th century CE.

Tomb for an emperor, fortress dungeon, treasure chamber and museum – Castel Sant’Angelo is one of the most striking landmarks of the Eternal City. Originally, the monument was a tomb commissioned by Emperor Hadrian (117-138 CE) in the last years of his reign for himself and his successors, and completed by Emperor Septimius Severus in 193 CE.
